the corner of 2 hexes�
5� Use the to-hit table on the back of the counters�
• Top numbers are the Range numbers�
• Middle numbers are the To Hit numbers�
• Bottom numbers are the Penetration numbers.
• Use the left most number that is equal to or greater than that number�
» 1� Roll 2d6 cross reference the to hit number below the proper
range on counter�
◊ Can be modified by adding the TM of target hex.
◊ Add 1 for each hex of degrading terrain you shoot through�
◊ Look for other modifiers on Ordinance Fire Table (OFT).
◊ If modified dice roll is equal or less than to-hit number the target has
been hit�
◊ A 2 is always a hit, a 12 always a miss�
6. If the Target isn’t a Vehicle
1� Use the Heat (H) equivalent + 1d6 roll� Subtract 1 from HE-Equivalent
number� “*” HE’s can’t attack non-vehicles�
2� If target is in buildings, huts, bunkers, or caves don’t subtract�
3� No modifiers are allowed except add 1 if target is moving, not low crawling.
4� Defender now rolls 1d6 and compares to attacker’s die roll.
5� If the attacker’s die roll is greater than defender’s die roll, each defending
unit takes a Damage Check (DC).
» Roll 1d6, add the difference between attacker’s and defender’s die roll
and consult the DFT.
7. If the Target is a Vehicle
1� Compare the penetration value number, called the Modified Penetration
Value (MPV) at the appropriate range + 1d6 against vehicle’s armor rating

Lock ’n Load Tactical World War II Era Rule Sequence Guide
+ 1d6. This is called the modified armor value (MAV).
1� If the attacker’s to-hit die roll is greater than 2 and an even number,
shell hits the turret�
» If doesn’t have a turret it hits the hull�
2� If the attacker’s to-hit die roll is greater than 2 or an odd number it hit
the hull�
3� Use the Armor rating on the front of the vehicle for armor values�
» Top left number for armor is of hull at front�
» 2nd left number is for armor of hull at side�
» 3rd left number is for armor of hull at back�
» Second (right) numbers over are for the turret, same locations�
4� If the MPV is greater than the MAV, vehicle is destroyed� Place a wreck
marker on there which has a degrading effect in that hex�
5� If Attacker rolls a 1 and defender rolls a 6 the round is a dud�
6� If Attacker rolls a 6 and defender rolls a 1 = total loss�
7� If target is destroyed, roll 1d6� On a 1, place a GO Crew under the wreck
marker� Otherwise eliminate the crew�
8� If MPV equals MAV, vehicle takes a MC (2d6)�
» If MC fails, crew abandons vehicle and remove from game�
» Vehicle stays on board under Abandoned marker� Can’t be used by
» If pass MC, vehicle is shaken�
9� If MPV is less than MAV, vehicle takes a MC (2d6)�
» Take difference between MPV and MAV and subtract it from the MC
die roll�
» If fails on this, Vehicle is Shaken�
» If pass, no effect�
» A die roll of 12 = Shaken vehicle�
» If shaken again, abandon vehicle�
2� If using SW ordnance and you fail to destroy vehicle, put a -1 target
acquisition on target and same acquiring marker on firing unit.
• If target doesn’t move and attacker fires again on next impulse, subtract
1 from the ordnance to-hit die roll�
• If fail again place a -2 target acquisition on target
» If doesn’t move subtract 2 from ordnance to-hit die roll�
3� If attacker becomes shaken remove the target acquisition markers

Vehicle Assault Move 15.2

1� You are allowed�
2� Only 1/2 of your MF�

1� Must have enough MF to enter hex and have 4 extra MF for clear or other
open type terrain�

Lock ’n Load Tactical World War II Era Rule Sequence Guide
2� Add the HE-equivalent MG FP and 2, roll 1d6, + AL modifier. Defender rolls
1d6 and compares to attacker’s results�
• If you are allowed to fire multiple times (N on counter next to HE) multiply
the HE-equivalent with the amount of additional fire allowed.
• If attacker’s total is more than defender’s die roll, each defending unit
takes a Damage Check (DM) by rolling 1d6 adding the difference between
attacker’s and defender’s initial totals and look on the Direct Fire Table
3� Any survivors can Close Assault the Overrun vehicle but first must pass a
Moral check (MC)�
4� If vehicle survives close assault, it can stay in hex or move on�
• If stays in hex any infantry units left in the hex except shaken WT, must

Close Assaulting Vehicles with Units Combat 17.1

1� Units can close assault vehicles by moving in their hex� Not WT’s�
2� Vehicles can only defend�
3� Melee eligible enemy units in vehicle hex prevent close assault�
4� Passengers riding outside of vehicle prevent close assault�
5� NME and Shaken units are not automatically eliminated until after vehicle is
6� Must pass a pre-close assault MC�
• Subtract 2 from attacker’s 1d6 if attacker’s come from a Positive TM
• LM applies
• If pass you can assault,
• If not, don’t move into hex� Mark with Move or OC marker�
7� Each unit individually assaults the tank, not together on FP�
• Roll 1d6 + IFP, + LM, + HE-equivalent or FP of any SW that applies (Satchel
Charge, Flamethrowers, Anti-tank SW)�
• If no SW’s, LM only applies to 1 squad unit�
• Defender vehicle rolls 1d6 + lowest armor.
• If attacker’s die roll is greater than defender’s, tank destroyed, gets a
wrecked marker�
• Repeat this process for each attacking unit�
• If vehicle is destroyed the crew and passengers are too�
• Units remaining mark with a Melee marker and now Shaken enemy units
are eliminated�
• If vehicle is not destroyed, attacker’s go back to hex they came from�
• If 2 vehicles in hex, do complete procedure twice�
• Can’t opportunity close assault a vehicle if it moves pass your units�
8. Small Arms versus Armored Vehicles (17.2) – Small arms are weapons
that don’t have the to-hit numbers on the back. They attack with inherent fire
power (IFP), and SW’s�
1� Attacking units use FP + 1d6. Check DFT for modifiers.
2� Target vehicle rolls 1d6 + TM, + lowest armor�
• If attacker’s die roll is greater than defender’s die roll you hit. Defender

Lock ’n Load Tactical World War II Era Rule Sequence Guide
takes a Damage Check (DC).
• If vehicle is buttoned with only outside riding passengers do the DC.
» Roll 1d6 + difference between the two results and consult the DFT. If
Armor LM is present, use his morale not vehicles� Infantry Leader’s
LM of passengers used�
» Shaken passengers disembark�
9. Small Arms versus Un-Armored Vehicles (17.3) (with a * in place of
1� Same as Small Arms versus Armor Vehicles but don’t count the armor
value for defender�

Mortars/Artillery against Armor Combat 17.4

1� 1� Same as Small Arms versus Armor Vehicles�
2� 2� A vehicle with an un-armored face is attacked as un-armored�

Onboard Mortars Combat 18.1

1� Mortars can’t fire from buildings, bunkers, forests, heavy jungles.
2� Use the DFT.
3� No positive TM for target if in hex of walls or hills�
4� Sniper TM is not doubled�
5� Attacks the whole hex, up stairs, in caves, etc�
6� Onboard Mortars can fire directly at targets or indirectly with a GO Leaders/
Scouts LOS and spotted� Mortars don’t need LOS or be spotted�
• Roll 2d6, pick the higher die roll, + mortar FP, check DFT modifiers. Resolve
• GO LM can’t be used on direct fire on same impulse.
• Put FFE markers on there� Anyone goes into the hex get hit for this
impulse only�

Off-Board Artillery Combat 18.2

1� Scenario tells if and when you can do this�
2� GO Leader/Scout calls it in based on LOS, doesn’t need to be spotted�
3� Roll 2d6 + degrading terrain to the white die, subtract the LM and divide the
remaining modified white die total by 2. (white die + degrading terrain – LM
divided by 2)
• This is how far the spotting round impacts from desired hex�
• Color die is direction the round drifts, 1 is north, 2 is northeast, etc�
• If modified hex is not in GO Leaders/Scout LOS put OC marker on Leader
and remove spotted marker�
• Otherwise GO Leader/Scout can shift marker 1 hex in any direction within
• Place a FFE marker and leave till Administration phase�
» Anyone goes there gets hit�
» Artillery hits that hex and all adjacent hexes with FP on scenario card�
» Roll for each hex to determine damage on DFT. DFT modifiers can be
used but not LM

» FFE marked and adjacent hexes are now degrading for LOS�
4� Can’t call 2 Artillery fire missions together unless 2 different formations have
5� GO Leaders can’t add LM to units in same impulse�
6� If Artillery mission is aborted, it can be attempted in another impulse�

Other Rules:
Morale Checks (MC) 1.5
1� Roll 2d6 - GO Leader Modifier (LM) -2 for positive Target Modifier (TM) (see
2� Equal to or less you pass�

Operations Complete Marker 4.1

1� MMC’s under Ops complete Marker (OC) can Opportunity Fire (OF) but
subtract 1 from IFP, unless hex has been spotted in same impulse, then full FP
is allowed�
2� SW are 1/2 FP for direct fire attacks using DFT and +2 DRM on OFT.
3� Vehicles can do OF with 1/2 FP for MG on DFT and +2 for to-hit for OFT weapons.
4� GO Leaders add their LM if hex was previously spotted�

Fortifications 21.0
Bunkers 21.1
1� Bunkers are placed at setup or part of an event.
2� They modify the TM by +2 or +3 if inside the bunker�
3� Units can be in or on top of bunkers, like a building�
4� Costs 2 movement points (MP) to move between inside or outside�
5� If inside can only direct fire through bunkers front 3 hexes, use red arrow on
6� Units on top can’t Melee with units inside and vise versa
7� Units outside or on top of bunker can fire into bunker like an adjacent hex.
Same with units inside bunker can fire on units on top like adjacent hexes.
8� It is blocking terrain for spotting purposes but doesn’t block LOS and has to be
spotted separately from hex� If adjacent you spot the bunker�
9� Vehicles can’t enter or destroy a bunker�
10� Units using the DFT only fire from bunker front arc or if on top of bunker. OFT

Lock ’n Load Tactical World War II Era Rule Sequence Guide
units can attack any direction�
11� Artillery and Mortars attack outside and inside bunkers� Adjust TM

Foxholes 21.2
1� Foxholes can be placed anywhere and add +1 to TM�
2� Vehicles and WT’s only gain this TM benefit if scenario sets them up there.
3� Units in foxholes get the +2 bonus for rallying in positive TM�

Barbed Wire 21.3

1� Cost is 4 movement points (MP) to enter a hex with wire� This is total not
additional to other TM�
2� T movement class vehicles destroy wire�

Mines 21.4
1� Mines attack with FP marked on marker� Can’t setup in buildings�
2� Up to 2 mine markers per hex and each attack separately�
3� To attack vehicles use Small Arms vs� Armor Vehicles�
• For example: Mines FP + 1d6 versus Vehicles lowest armor +1d6�
4� For unarmored vehicles use procedures of Small Arms versus Non Armor
5� Friendly units don’t get attacked by their mines but must pay +1 MF to enter
mine hex�

Laying Smoke 7.0

(If outlined in module-specific rules) (Use OC Marker)
1� Can do in own hex or adjacent hex�
2� Select hex, roll 1d6�
• If equal or less that unit’s smoke laying capability place Smoke 1 marker�
• Place OC marker on unit who did that�
• Smoke is blocking Terrain with +1 TM added to existing TM amount�
3� Units firing from a smoke hex -1 from DFT die roll and +1 to OFT to-hit roll.
4� Next Administration phase replace with Smoke 2 marker�
5� Next Administration phase after that remove marker�

Skills 12.0
1� Place all skill counters in opaque cup to draw from�
2� Place Skill marker under unit�
3� Put used skills back in cup�

Administration Phase 9.0

1� Remove all markers�
